[Video] Custom Styleflip.com Vestax VCI-400

The Vestax VCI-400 Digital DJ controller is extremely versatile as it can work with both the full Serato DJ software and Traktor Pro 2 with great results. I've decided to keep the VCI-400 for my personal controller of choice and since then we've upgraded the crossfader (on our DIY Video) and now we're ready to customize the looks. With the help of our friends over at Styleflip.com we were able to perfectly match the black/white pinstripe design on my DVS setup and replicate it on the VCI-400.

“None of It Makes Sense”: An Interview With JELEEL!

Rapper JELEEL! has enough viral energy to power a city block. He breaks down the process of finding his voice for Audiomack.

I decided to go with the same style on my customized Z2 and the Stanton ST-150 turntables that the Styleflip team executed a few months ago. I always wanted a pin-stripe look to my entire setup, but I wanted to go with Black/White mix with black being the main color. I also uploaded the DJbooth.net logo and asked the king folks at Styleflip to make it in Grey-scale so it would match the overall color scheme. After strategic placement of the DJbooth.net logo's, we decided to send it to print. The skin is just as durable as I expected and now the VCI-400 perfectly matches the rest of my gear.

The Template builder can be found at the

Styleflip.com

website where you can add your own artwork or customize your gear any way you see fit. If you aren't comfortable using the supplied template builder, then you can also use a photoshop template that can be sent to you at your request. They are always willing to work with you to make sure your designs come out just right, so be sure to email them to see if they can make your custom setup into a reality.

Application is a breeze as seen in the video. Simply clean the surface of any debris and apply the 3M adhesive backing to the unit making sure you don't stretch it or bend it... Just make sure you take your time to get it just right. Good Luck and happy modding!
